I love lists and this class is all about documenting the things that mean the most to you in list form. We'll be starting an album that is loosely based around the number ten. The kit will allow you to complete the first 11+ pages of the album.

The first layout in your album will be an introduction page that summarizes the other ten layouts you'll be making. The remaining ten layouts will each, individually focus on your ‘ten things’.

Although the album is based around the number ten, you get to decide the specific theme for your album and how you’ll add to it over time. Maybe you want to document ten things that make you happy, ten of your best memories, ten goals you have, ten lessons you want to pass along to your kids, ten reasons you’re glad you married him, ten things that have made you who you are today, etc. For my album, I focused on ten reasons I want to make some changes in my life.

The rest of the album can be completed over time, still focusing on the number ten. Just a few ideas: your top ten favorite songs, top ten favorite quotes, ten things you want to do someday, your ten favorite photos, ten things you'd have done differently, etc. I also want to have everyone in my house make their own 'Top ten favorites' list so I can scrapbook each of them to include in my album.

It’s full of possibility.

Eleven sheets of your favorite white cardstock (smooth or textured), paper trimmer, scissors, craft-knife, metal edged ruler, cutting mat, adhesive (I use Hermafix tabs), liquid glue (I recommend Zip Dry or Tombo Mono Aqua), mini and medium Glue Dots, corner rounder (I just got the new one from Zutter that will punch through chipboard and love it), paper piercer, stapler and staples, black fine tip writing pen (I use a Zig 05), one page protector, foam brush, acrylic paint (I used a robin-egg blue color).

Optional supplies: Date stamp, black inkpad (I use Brilliance Graphite Black), Black Staz-On inkpad, bone folder or scoring blade, rub-on tool (I use one by Basic Grey).

You will also need to bring the following:
- one vertical 4x6 photo (preferably B&W) that will be used for the cover page of your album. This photo needs to represent the theme of your album (I used a picture of myself). I had a white border called 'Whirlwind' printed on mine at www.scrapbookpictures.com.
- ten 8x12 photos, either horizontal or vertical (preferably B&W). Each photo needs to represent one of your 'ten things'.
- ten journaling strips that document your 'ten things' individually. These can be thin hand-written strips of paper, or they can be computer generated journaling strips (I just printed each of my 10 Reasons onto white cardstock using a Times New Roman size 12 font). Please bring two copies of each of these.
